Hello Tom 
We have talked about this. 
It needs a rework to add feature and put it in a box? 
I still use mine, but its unhandy to move the jum[ers!

The 4SQRP group already put out the HF test set.  It's got a frequency
counter, crystal oscillator, dummy load, noise generator, audio tone
generator, and TDR.  That kit was retired long ago, so I don't know if
they'd be willing to resurrect it.

I already have a 6m receiver in the form of my Icom R75.  But I've long
wanted to get onto 6m, so a 6m xceiver kit would be great, either CW or
SSB or both.

Another good idea.  What I actually do is have an old CB hooked up in my
shack to listen for 10m band openings.  When I hear all the overpowered
stations blabbering on channel 6, I know that 10 might be opening up.
But a 10 beacon receiver would be a neat idea.
